Big news, everybody! During the month of April, I will be blogging my way through Hayao Miyazaki's 1978 TV series, Future Boy Conan. The plan is to watch and discuss one episode a night, and burn through all 26 episodes of the series.
I probably won't be able to post full episodes here on the blog, so I recommend you download the fansub (if you have not already done so), and watch along with me. I will only be writing about each episode as I've watched it, so I'll be following along with everyone else. It's been a number of years since I've sat through Future Boy Conan, so this will just as fun for me as it is for you.
I call on all Studio Ghibli-themed and anime websites to join me on 26 Days of Conan. Write your own blog posts and share your insights. If you've never seen the series before, so much the better! Let this be your chance to discover one of Miyazaki's great classics. Consider this the latest Miyazaki Blog-athon!
For those who aren't aware, an English-subtitled fansub copy of Conan is readily available. You can find the links at the Ghibli Blog Downloads section. I'll begin on April 1 with an overview post, and then begin watching and blogging the series on April 2. I suggest everyone else also follow this schedule - just imagine that we're all watching Conan together.
If anyone has any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'll do my best to help.
